Still time for Carols....

This press release was sent to me by my good friend who used to blog as A Reluctant Sinner.

It refers to a Carol Service at The Church of Our Lady of the Assumption and St Gregory, Warwick Street, Soho on January 9th at 6.30pm.

And afterwards....mince pies and galettes des rois - what are they?

 They are King's Cakes, no less, so much for 'O' Level French.

All are welcome.
